Yes folks I have joined the legions of baby boomers who are in search of their body they left behind in their 20s and 30s. In doing so I have joined the ranks of "you got to bust your gut" and all the cardiovascular activities to firm up including bike riding and treadmill. This is where the Koss TM-602 headphones comes in.

Our lovely YMCA has equipped their cardioflex center with 3 TVs, 1 cd player and 1 stereo system which you can plug headphones in to while you're chugging along melting those pounds off. Oh sure, you can use headphones they have laying around, but do you know whose earwax and sweat is deposited in those foamy covers? Have you ever seen some of those guys who sweat buckets while running 100 mph?!
Enter the Koss TM-602. The company was founded by John Koss in 1953 as a hospital TV rental business. In 1958 they manufactured a phonograph along with a pair of aviator headphones for listening. Thus began the headphone industry for them. You can follow the decades and more at their website www.koss.com
What I like about the Koss TM-602 is the price, a five dollar bill plus some loose change will buy you a pair with a frequency of 100-18,000 Hz, the sound is decent, you get adjustable headband that slides easy but locks into place, and they're lightweight. They have a lifetime limited warranty. Though I don't know that I would send them to be fix as they cost $5!! to send them back!
What I don't like about the Koss TM-602 is the foamy ears will eventually disintegrate with a lot of use, and I would like about a 6 foot cord instead of the 4 foot.
So if you are looking for a cheap listening thrill for your stationary or semi-stationary workout, exercise your legs and walk into your local discount store and buy a pair of these headphones.
